Melanie Charles: Y’all Don’t (Really) Care About Black Women LP

As a Verve Remixed project, with Y’all Don’t (Really) Care About Black Women, Melanie Charles set out to take this group of songs and breathe new energy into them. Melanie was immediately drawn to the rapturous voices of Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughn who inspired her to record arrangements of “God Bless the Child” and “Detour Ahead.” Y’all Don’t (Really) Care About Black Women is a love letter to the unheralded labor of black women. Melanie asks listeners to be accountable to and black women as much as they care for their works.
